My name is Georgina. I am Australian. I recently relocated to Greenwich CT after 6 years living in New York City. I live with my partner John and our two sweet girls - 3 year old Charlotte and baby Alexandra. Oh, and let's not forget the fur-baby Winston. Welcome to my corner of the internet. I hope you brought cake.

Georgie Girl

I’m pretty sure this little shit head is planning his next escape. I was in floods of tears searching for him today after he went missing for 3 hours.
Today I learned two things. 
1. Electric fences are not fool proof.
2. Dogs should always wear some form of identification. Because see #1.
I really truly believed I had lost him forever today. 
A man a few streets away found him on his doorstep and brought him inside. Then he brought Winston down to the vet to see if he is micro-chipped. He’s not. Then he called Animal Control in Greenwich who thankfully had our contact details after we had called earlier. Both John and I had been driving around separately looking for the little stinker while all this was happening.
So now Winston is wearing his old collar with all his ID tags and John has added our phone number to his electric collar. I’m also calling the electric collar people to get a smaller size collar.
Oh, and also also also I found out about this brilliant company. I’ve bookmarked it. Just in case.

C&L Reunited!

C&L were BFFs in the city. They lived on the same block. They played together every single day. Their nannies became the best of friends and L’s Mom became one of my very good friends. And now they are reunited!! L is moving to Greenwich in a few weeks and starting at the same preschool as Charlotte. HURRAY!!!!

They spotted each other in the playground, walked up to each other and just stared at each other for a few seconds. Charlotte then took Livia by the hand and off they went like they had never been apart.

I went back into my blog archives and found this adorable picture of them when they were just 14 months old!

Are me, Alex and Daddy going to make you a special breakfast on Mother’s Day? Like Mummy Pig. Charlotte asked me this morning. I laughed and decided that Peppa Pig is MY favorite cartoon too.

Winston Looks Suave

Ever since the "Winston Goes Bald in the Middle of Winter Incident of 2012" I have only sent him to the groomer once. 

When I saw a brand new groomer opened nearby I couldn’t wait to send Winston in for a major clean up.

Look how handsome he looks! I especially love that the groomer took Before and After pics and posted them on her Facebook page. Oh, and the polka dot neck tie? LOVE IT.

Oh, this is good! Read on….

How can we be happy?
50 people were attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each person a balloon and asked each person to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
These delegates were soon lead into the other room and were asked to find their balloon within 5 minutes. Everyone frantically searched for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others— utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Each person was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— this is currently happening in our lives.
 Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.

Oh, this is good! Read on….

Jen sent me a link to this amaaaaaazing haircut this morning. We both love these long bobs that seem kind of choppy. But I know that if I attempted cutting my hair it would never look like this. I don’t understand how people get their hair to look straight but kinda wavey. I can’t even describe the haircut let alone attempt doing it. Do you have this haircut? how do you make your hair look like this?
